Try the frozen grapes (red or green) in white wine. It will keep it chilled longer and it does not dilute the wine! Cheers.
I used both confectioner's sugar and granulated sugar. I think the granulated sugar worked better and adhered to the grapes better. Both tasted good, but the granulated looked better in the photograph, so that is what is depicted. I was surprised how tasty they were frozen as they were a bit sour before I froze them. Definitely improved sweetness. Made for Help A Naked recipe.
I loved these as a child and I like them a lot thawing a slight bit without added sugar!
I came up against this recipe by accident, and knew I had to give another rating. I love frozen grapes - but never had it with confectioner's sugar. Great idea for a lovely presentation! Good job, Mirj!
Perfect is the word. Great simple dessert, breakfast, treat, whatever! It doesn't get healthier or tastier than this!
I agree these are very sweet & tasty. I actually discovered the same idea (without the sugar) when my refrigerator was so cold that it accidentally froze the grapes. I'd like to offer one word of caution though, I think people should think twice before offering this treat to young children as it might be a choking hazard.
I've been eating these for years! I just take the stems off the grapes and put them in a ziplock bag and throw them in the freezer. Great treat in the summer. DH thinks I'm weird, but I started letting DD try them (great for teething!) and she loves them. :) I skip the sugar. If your grapes are ripe, I don't think you need them (might be pretty though).
Huh! These were pretty good. I have cold sensitive teeth so I let them warm just a little before I took a bite. Nice and refreshing and they fizzed really nice when plopped into some champagne.
I have been eating frozen green grapes since I was probably 5 years old. My next door neighbor introduced me to them back then and I still eat them today. They are so good and cold on a hot summer day. I love the green grapes that are very green and firm... I find that these produce the best texture and flavor. I just usually wash them and throw the whole bunch (stems and all) into the freezer for a few hours before enjoying... such a simple fruity snack!
These are fantastic! I skipped the sugar and don't think it needed any; the grapes actually tasted sweeter frozen than they did fresh. The best thing about this recipe is that it's such a great, healthy and low-fat snack. I often succumb to my afternoon sweet cravings after my dd's go down for their nap, and with these there's no guilt involved. Even if you're not trying to lose weight, you can't go wrong with a healthy snack, right? I love these best about 10 minutes out of the freezer, frozen but not rock-hard (the same way I like my ice cream). This is ingenious, thanks for sharing!
